is the romney/ryan ticket is not credible on the issue of the war that we are fighting. >> no, they're not. >> we have 68,000 people right now, paul ryan embarrassed himself on afghanistan tonight in a way he embarrassed himself on no other issue. he did not understand the question well enough to know that he was making a mistake because he's just learned this for the test. he doesn't understand any of it. i find it terrifying. >> i think that he absolutely blew it in terms of afghanistan. i think even when he said marines in benghazi, when marines are at embassies. and, i mean, he also bent the truth. he's not at the level of liar as romney. he's a fibber. growing to be a liar. romney's an accomplished liar. but i think that clearly mr. biden gave facts. there was nothing they could refute. and i think he was fiery and to the point. i think ryan held his right wing position. he did not do the chameleon thing that romney did. >> that's true. >> i think it will hurt him in the end and hurt romney in the end and i think when it came especially to foreign affairs, it's good it was in a colleg
on paul ryan, of course to keep up the pace and perform as well as mitt romney did in his debate last week with president obama. the president himself even talked about it yesterday. gave an interview with diane sawyer. she asked him first of all what happened to you when you got on stage with old mittens? >> that debate what happened? >> obama: well governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. it's not the first time i had a bad night, but i think what is important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about haven't changed. governor romney went to a lot of trouble to try to hide what his positions are. >> bill: good way to sum it up. i had a bad night. he had a good night, but he just told a back of lies. and then he was asked what about the participates in tonight's debate. first of what do you expect from paul ryan? >> obama: congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker, but it ideas are the wrong ones and joe understands that. >> bill: oh. oh. so he is saying don't lower your expectations. and what do you think joe biden has to do mr. president.
. today the shoe is on the other food for obama/biden and romney/ryan. last week it was the president's team facing high expectations. this week it is paul ryan who is expected to perform well. last week the stakes were monumental for the romney team who desperately needed a strong performance to overcome weeks of mistakes, bad polls and republican hand wringing. this week it is team obama facing high stakes to stop the bleeding and quiet the lamenting of freaked out democrats who were disappointed with last week's apathetic performance. the stylistic shoe may be on the other foot as well. ryan like obama can come across as cerebral and distant. one last thing, while the pressure is on for biden, a lot is at stake for ryan too. while he is well known by inside the belt way crowd, the national audience is just getting to know ryan. his unnecessary bending of the truth sullied his reputation. this is take two for ryan to make a favorable impression and to preserve his own future regardless of whether the romney ryan ticket. this is happening in kentucky, a state known for derby, bourbon
coverage starting at 2:45 eastern. mitt romney is teaming up with paul ryan for a rally in lancaster, ohio. c-span will have live coverage of that starting at 5:40 p.m. eastern. >> can we focus on the issues and not the personalities and the mud? there is a need, if we can take a poll here. there is a need to focus on the needs. >> how the gentlemen response? >> let's talk about these issues. let's talk about the programs that, in the presidency, a lot goes into it. caring goes into it. that is not specific. strength goes into it. that is not specific. this is what a president has to do. in principle, i will take your point and i think we ought to discuss child care or whatever else it is. >> and you, too? >> i will take the place because i know the american people want to talk about issues and not tabloid journalism. i will take the pledge and talk about the issues. for the record, i do not have any spin doctors or speechwriters. it probably shows. [laughter] i make those charts you see on television. if you don't have to wonder it is me talking. what you see is what you get. if you do no
to mitt romney's and paul ryan's budget plan, it would cost $2,000 to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, it turns medicare into a voucher system. that's one thing that mitt romney was honest about. he said that we should cut medicare benefits. embrace that and proposed it. and then to add insult to injury said, yeah, we won't be able to have medicare to continue to be a guarantee, we will have to shred that safety net to preserve it. barack obama's plan has proven we can add years of solvency, 8 years by making sure we reduce wasteful subsidies to medicare insurance companies and add years of solvency. we need to work together to continue to move forward, not have republicans rooting for failure and really transparently being disappointed that we have made progress. we have a ways to go, but we need to continue to move forward and fight for the middle class, not for the people who are doing really, really well and make sure they can do even better. >> shannon: you brought up obamacare. and medicare, but that's a plan, which outside independent bodies and fact-checking o
. >> paul ryan was trying to praise romney's career as governor in massachusetts. and biden said, wait a minute he's not even competing there, he can't carry his own state. and the republicans have been making a lot about his bipartisanship. he was able to get along with the democratic legitimate slate stur. the democrats in the legislate stur were far more cooperative with the republican governor than the republicans are today with the democratic president. >> let's turn to the state we can't seem to talk enough about, ohio, the buckeye state. both candidates doing anything they can to win over specifically michael smerkonish, working-class voters in ohio. for romney, that's about calling out obama for being weak on china, this is yesterday. >> we're going to do this, we're going to make sure when people cheat and china has been cheating, we're not going to let it go on. i'm not going to pass it off. on day one i will label china a currency manipulator and we're going to get serious when we make sure that people don't cheat when it comes to trade. >> is that a message that's going to
, comparing with that of romney and ryan. steve. >> so romney and ryan do have somewhat different plans. we talked a lot in the debate last week about taxes. this is the spending side of the equation. to kind of lay out apropos conversations we had earlier in the show about what ryan and romney each believe about spending, let's start with kind of an overview of where the three people would like to bring spending over the next ten years. the 20-year historical average is at about 21%,ed red line that you see across there. obama would like to have spending end up at 23%. romney and ryan both want it down at 20%. so there's a clear difference, and they all agree on where it should go. what gets interesting is as you dig into the detail of what gets cut, and you'll see some very, i think, fascinating differences among these guys. so on social security, as you heard president obama say in the last debate, the three guys are actually in the same place. they want to spend the same amount on social security in the next ten years. when you get to medicare, romney and ryan are in the same place, but
for mitt romney and ryan to say. host: were you hired because of the convention and then laid off after word? caller: i was hired away before the convention. but the thing was that i got fired for unnecessary reasons. they were just during layoffs and layoffs at and things. i think obama said it best when he ran in 2008. we're going to go through bad times. you have to go out before you can get good. -- go bad before you can get good. he said this was going to take us some time, but we are going to get through it. it is going to get hard before it gets good. if we unite together and work together as a country. host: we will leave it there. but go to john in long beach. tell us your story appeared caller: i've never voted, but i have -- tell us your story. caller: i have never voted, but i have followed the politics. i grew up in south beach and in alaska. i always wondered why the politicians never talked about the old issues, the war on drugs that kind of thing. i just don't know where we are coming from these days. host: what is a real issue to you? the war on drugs is a real issue? c
that had paul ryan on the telephone. he called up the actress who was attacked for supporting mitt romney. you think president obama will do the same thing for sandra fluck. >> brian: forget halloween and politics it is all about the october surprise. starting with this guy and it happened every year since. what will it be in 2012? if i knew i wouldn't ruin it for you. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: you know what could be an october surprise is if big bird comes out and said he is for mitt romney. >> gretchen: the people at sesame street said they are not for any cand date. they don't want esident obama's adto continue to run and they are asking for it to come down. >> brian: obama people are thinking about it >> maybe that is because it was panned by both sides of the aisle. >> brian: we listened to it on radio yesterday. it sounds like steven colbear or jon stewart it sounds like a total comedy nothing to do with either side. >> steve: they feature three people from wall street, evil villians. >> brian: madav and ken lay. >> steve: all indicted
to want to really frame a negative message against romney and ryan, and pick up where the president didn't do that well last week, or didn't mention at all, thinking of issues like the auto ballot, social security, the ryan proposal on that. the medicare issue, the 47% comment that romney made and people were stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel
taken after the first presidential showdown. according to the "fox news poll" the romney ryan ticket got a boost jumping three points while the obama-biden ticket dropped three. the impact of the debate seems greater among independents with that voting bloc jumping five points in support of team romney while team obama dropped 7 points. president obama's opinion stayed the same after the debate while gove romney's rose four percentage points. that gives him a one point lead. still when you factor in the margin of error it is still too close to call. how did the president and governor romney did at the debate? both are weighing in. >> well, governor romney i had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it is not the first time i've had a bad night. >> well, obviously the president wasn't happy with the response to our debate last night. >> what's your message to joe biden about tomorrow night? >> well i, you know, i think joe just needs to be joe. jon: joining us now is karl rove, former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush and a fox news contr
the audience through the positions which the romney/ryan ticket has taken for 99% of the campaign so far in the last 18 months on tax cuts, on obama care, on dodd-frank, and by the way, on women's health. that's number one. number two, i think would be to raise the question perhaps at the end of the debate or make the point that each of these two guys on the stage is a heartbeat away from the presidency and therefore for the audience and the nation watching, how do they feel about the fitness of each of these two to be on a moment's notice the president of the united states. >> roger, what about the question that came up again and again at the beginning of the presidential debate which is you say it's a $5 trillion tax cut, romney said it's not. he said it was this, it's this back and forth. does biden have to say here's what you're saying right now, which is you'll bring down rates but at the same time you'll be closing loopholes. how do you get into that and what's the winning strategy with it? because the back and forth was -- >> again, becky, nobody's asking me but i would be a littl
collection. which does not sound interesting as it is, but mitt romney picked paul ryan and the expectation among supporters would -- was that this would be a chance for him to outline a campaign with a whole set of policy decisions that would set him apart from the president, but in the past few weeks we have seen the campaign dynamics not changed that much. this is just one more issue on which the republicans are trying to be the president. host: is mitt romney going to focus more on what the president is doing wrong, or more on his own plan? caller: based on the release extroverts -- exurbs of the speech, it looks like they're trying to follow up on obama. there is not a huge gap there and the question for the president was from a couple of months ago, clearly the mitt romney campaign knows that there is more time to make some headway there. there is always the risk that by focusing on this before the vice presidential debate, even as both sides think that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there wil
. >> please, go right ahead. bill: romney, and obama go next week. but thursday night is ryan and biden. now, i don't know. this could be a cage match, tanteros. i mean, biden taken six days of the trail. he is in some undisclosed location east of the chesapeake bay. what is your expectation for thursday night? >> they have him muzzled like hannibal lecter with the mask on so he doesn't say anything silly. this will be bigger heated debate than three of us have every tuesday. pressure is on. unlike what bob is saying on this point, you heard him on "the five" debates don't matter. debates don't matter. he has been wrong. they will look to thursday night interested to see ryan will do. he is untested. bill: yes. >> he is so disciplined, bill. even though they will try to tie ryan i believe and romney together as much much as they can the ryan plan, ryan is such expert explaining it. that's what romney did so well last week. he explained his positions finally, so well when you're presented with facts all the obama campaign is left to do is just throw mud and call him a liar. >> facts. are you
believe and romney together as much much as they can the ryan plan, ryan is su expert explaining it. that's what romney did so well last week. he explained his positions finally, so well when you're presented with facts all the obama campaign is left to do is just throw mud and call him a liar. >> facts. are you kidding? first of all when ryan is disciplined, talks some minute next sales plummet. hear is the point. obama didn't go after romney on facts. what is your tax deductions you're talking about. he didn't say because he won't have any. biden will go after ryan their policy gay and get down to it. this will be like a cage match. biden will beat this guy like an empty drum. ryan is looking more like howdy doody every day. >> if romney was lying, rye romney lying so much why didn't the pet call him out. >> that is the point, andrea and he didn't. >> he couldn't. he couldn't argue facts. >> 9:00 a.m. on the 9th of october. roll this tape back on friday morning. >> we should do that. i just can't wait. >> by the way bob has been so grumpy lately, bill. >> i'm not grumpy at all. just bec
ryan than president obama did with mitt romney last week. >> i think paul ryan is gonna did a great job. i think that joe biden is a very good key baiter. >> analysts say that there's pressure on ryan to show he's potential protesters presidential material in his first debate. >> early voting begins today. if you want to vote today, head to the offices today but most of them are closed because of columbus day. >>> ven sway sway lan president -- inventoryian venezuelan presidential hugo chavez ran the presidency again. he's the longest-running president in latin-america. >>> fighting continues between syria and turkey. turkish troops have retaliated. the countries have been fighting for six days and five people have died. >>> military experts in israel are working around the clock to examine the remains of a mysterious drone shot down over the weekend. >> the military says it was discovered flying over the northern desert. they believe the unmanned drone may have originated from will be bau done -- lebanon. nine supporters of wikileaks found -- >>> nine supporters of wikileaks' founder a
they can elect you. >> steve: is calling mitt romney and ryan a good strategy. here to weigh in is washington insider amelia and democrat pollster marjorie. good morning to both of you. >> margey. it does sound like according to the new york times, 10 minutes before the end of the debate they were on a conference call talking about he stunk up the place. we'll have to go full steam ahead on a new attack and that is going to be romney is a liar. >> any time you hear mitt romney express different position than the day before it is for voters to know. we would be talking about mitt romney's loose interpretation of the facts regardless of what the people thought of the pet's performance. his own campaign walked back what romney said about covering people with preexisting conditions in the healthcare plan. >> marjorie wasn't the president lying when he repeatedly said mitt romney would raise taxes five trillion dollars. it will not be near five trillion wasn't that a lie. >> no it is not a lie because romney will not talk about the loop holes. he refuses to walk through the math.
know the campaign was feeling really good about it, feeling like paul ryan has hut romney there and you have a poll like this. the only thing i can say about people moving around so much is they're obviously not happy for obama and they're looking for an all thalternative. what happened was an alternative showed up at the debate and had to meet a certain threshold to say okay, this guy actually, yeah, he could be president, and so what has to happen in the next debate is obama has to convince people that a, no, he's not ready to be president, and b, you've gotta stay with me because we're on the right track, we're moving in the right direction. you don't want to change courses mid stream. > >> shannon: a much tighter race in ohio where the averages are going in favor of the president. of course, that's a key state for anybody who wants to get to the white house. do you think that romney has a chance to break through there because the latest poll out that the obama campaign is citing gives a 5-point edge and it's sometimes an outlier and leans left. they're touting it this morning saying
. god bless him, he fought for our country. romney and ryan, first off, let's get something clear here once and for all, as far as the sequestered cuts go, it is not obama's thing, okay? it was congress and paul ryan's thing because they were too immature to act like grown-ups and make a deal, ok? obama had nothing to do with it. it was paul ryan and congress. guest: i do think that the one of the issues that one of the -- that people will be basing their vote on is the question of leadership at large and that is why you heard a lot about leadership from mitt romney and what kind of role obama is projecting and by extension what he is doing at home in guiding in shaping how we use natural resources. although the polls might not registered significance to a particular foreign policy issue, when it comes to the broader question of leadership, that is part of what people will be casting their vote on. there is an opportunity, as the mitt romney team has identified, to suggest criticism of president obama as a leader. host: president obama was at a fund-raiser in california last night.

campaign. he said he's studying on ryan's record an he will make that his focus tonight. >> governor romney has -- i don't want to say anything in the debate that is into the completely accurate. president obama attended martha raddic attended her wedding 20 years ago, some say it's a conflict of interest. the debate team says it's a nonissue. >> you can watch the debate tonight at 6:00. ktvu news will follow immediately afterward. we're providing live streaming coverage at ktvu.com. >>> in just a few hours, a preliminary hearing will resume. 18-year-old max wade of san rafael is charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting at a mill valley come back in april. authorities think he was angry about romantic rejection. he's also accused of stealing guy fieri's lamborghini last march. >>> a mcdonald's manager in novato is accused of sexually assaulting an employee. the alleged victim says he molested her several times at the restaurant. >>> a hearing is scheduled today in the case against james holmes, the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 more in an aurora colorado movie
. there was criticism he was interrupting and being disrespectful to paul ryan. on this tuesday it's a townhall format. so if you come across being disrespectful, that can backfire. >> heather: mitt romney is preparing for this. what are we hearing from his camp right now? >> he has rob portman the senator from ohio is playing in the debate sessions to get mitt romney ready. they were doing more sessions over the last couple of days together. bottom line they have been campaigning together in ohio even while the president has been mostly down here, hunkered down getting ready. mitt romney has been out on the stump. his advisors are saying the president may be bringing a different style but they think he has disadvantage in the second debate. >> the president can change his style. he can change his tactics. he can't change his record or policies. that is what this election is about. the fact that $4,300 drop in household incomes has occurred under his watch. >> reporter: now what is interesting, rob portman playing the role of the president on the g.o.p. side here. on the democratic you have john kerry
a quarter million new jobs. >>> he is in virginia prepping for tuesday's debate. romney is also gearing up for the debate. he is meeting advisers in ohio. later today he has two campaign stops in that state. >>> his running mate, paul ryan is currently in ohio as well and we want to show you a live picture. that's of the rally going on right now attention town state university. later on he will stop at another ohio college. it's thought whoever wins that state will likely win the office. >> police are investigating a shooting outside the president's campaign office in denver. one bullet shattered an office window yesterday afternoon. there were people inside but nobody was hit. the broken window was boarded up and police say they have a description of a vehicle of interest. they are trying now to figure out if the office was targeted or hit by a stray bullet. >> we know how much money the victims of the colorado theater shooting will get. the families and the victims who had brain damage or were paralyzed will get 1 75,000 dollars each. the other victims will get an amount based on how l
, et cetera. look there's no question -- >> axelrod. >> -- governor romney changed his position in that debate radically. first of all he said he would sign the ryan budget which has a 20% tax cut across the board for everybody including the richest americans. number two he never explained and the president didn't call him on it how he'll account for that almost $5 trillion cut, plus the $2 trillion in military spending that they advocate which the defense department and the generals haven't even asked for. there's been no explanation of that and that's a pretty important issue. the president didn't do a good job framing that issue. there's no question. >> you're such a savvy politician. you're the best, and you know, if you lose a game and say well the other guy cheated that makes you look bad. there's no upside to that. you should be advising his people that's not the way to do this. >> and joe, one other thing i want to say, i think jim realized this, i was around for the, president reagan's first re-election debate, you recall he gave a terrible performance, he wandered in h
a nephew who was a marine. he did a tour in iraq and god left him, he thought for our country. and romney in mind, first off, let's get something real clear here once and for all. as far as the sequester cut goes, that is obama's being. it was congressman paul ryan thing because they were too immature to act like grown-ups and make a deal, okay? obama had nothing to do with it. it was paul ryan and the congress. selected that clear once and for all. >> host: castling. >> guest: i think one of diminished on trade issues is the question of leadership and that's we heard a lot from that romney about leadership and what kind of role is obama projecting and by extension, what leadership really seaplane as well as here at home in guiding and shaping how we use our national resources. i do think although the polls may not register that much significance to any foreign policy issue, that when it comes to the broader question of leadership, that is a part of what people are going to be casting those done. i think there's an opportunity as romney clearly identified to criticize obama as a leader. >
